Hosted by Sustainable Bridgnorth..
Can we imagine a better future for humanity? A future where all the UN Sustainable Development Goals have been met: a very much more socially just world, where everyone has access to clean water, good food, better education and worthwhile jobs, excellent health care, decent housing with sanitation and reliable electricity. A more peaceful world, a world where Climate Change is being addressed and carbon emissions have plummeted, where the polluted air, rivers and oceans are being cleaned up and where rainforests are recovering, where biodiversity is resurgent. Technologically and philosophically this is all achievable, but politically it’ll be challenging, but possible!
The presentation will address the fundamental principles of “How to create a better World”
Richard Priestley is a lifelong environmentalist and activist. For the last decade he’s been writing, giving one-off talks, teaching a course of evening classes and writing a blog using the title ‘Global Problems: Global Solutions’ – see www.richardpriestley.co.uk. His work tends to be a very positive, solution focused romp through a complex web of problems from climate change to hunger and poverty. He’s an advocate of pollution minimisation, energy efficient and renewable energy technologies, of socially, economically and politically inclusive ways of doing things and is hugely encouraged by some of the less reported success stories from around the world.
Tickets for the event (£2.50 including light refreshments) are available from Bridgnorth Library, Tanners Wines or through Sustainable Bridgnorth 01746 766577.
